500 YEARS
OF PLANTIN

Typography

Brief: We’ll celebrate Christophe Plantin’s 500th birthday. Create a poster series with focus on typography for the Plantin-Moretus museum in Antwerp.

Insight: Christophe Plantin was one of the first to make music prints and Hendrik van den Keere created typefaces as well as graphics for the prints.

Solution: I decided to create a classic, but modern poster series. The typeface is called Ivy Presto and is a modern typeface inspired by one of Hendrik van den Keere’s typfaces that was made for music prints.
